9780295996578: Northwest Lands, Northwest Peoples: Readings in Environmental History

It can be said that all of human history is environmental history, for all human action happens in an environment―in a place. This collection of essays explores the environmental history of the Pacific Northwest of North America, addressing questions of how humans have adapted to the northwestern landscape and modified it over time, and how the changing landscape in turn affected human society, economy, laws, and values.

Northwest Lands and Peoples includes essays by historians, anthropologists, ecologists, a botanist, geographers, biologists, law professors, and a journalist. It addresses a wide variety of topics indicative of current scholarship in the rapidly growing field of environmental history.

From Library Journal:

These 24 essays, drawn from a symposium on Northwest environmental history held in Pullman, WA, in August 1996, address questions of how humans have adapted to and modified the environment of the Pacific Northwest. Contributors include historians, anthropologists, ethnoecologists, geographers, biologists, law professors, and well-known names such as Dan Flores, William Dietrich, William L. Land, and William G. Robbins. The interdisciplinary essays are divided in six sections introduced by a brief synopsis, which summarizes the authors' main points and places them in the context of the Pacific Northwest's bioregional history. The multiple points of view provoke questions and analytical thinking. Recommended for libraries with regional and environmental history collections.

Review:

"A wide ranging and provocative collection of essays . . . . should work well in college courses of various disciplines. . . . valuable to land managers, agency scientists, urban planners, and others involved with environmental issues in the region."―Mark Harvey, author of A Symbol of Wilderness: Echo Park and the American Conservation Movement

"An ambitious and effective collection of important articles on various aspects of the environmental history of the Pacific Northwest. . . . The collection will supplement courses in Northwest history, geography, natural resource management, and environmental studies, as well as American studies, environmental sociology, environmental policy, and environmental law."―Stephen Haycox, University of Alaska Anchorage
